A Temporary Ban for Barring Officials in Senate Hearings

The Philippine Bar Association shared that President Rodrigo Duterte’s organization banning authorities of the presidential branch from going to Senate hearings into pandemic spending abuses the division of forces under the Constitution.

In an assertion, the country’s most established association of attorneys said that Duterte’s structure “disturbs our arrangement of governing rules and violates the teaching of partition of forces among the three parts of government under our Constitution.

They likewise said that Duterte’s structure for the Armed Forces of the Philippines, Philippine National Police and formally dressed administrations to disregard warrants from the Senate is an “unnecessary impedance of Legislative rights and abuses the regulation of partition of forces.”

The PBA then, at that point, spoke to Duterte, who they noted is a “sibling in the legitimate calling. In September, Duterte said he will require his Cabinet individuals to look for his endorsement first prior to going to legislative requests. This, as the Senate proceeds with its hearing into the public authority’s pandemic spending.

The Senate Blue Ribbon Committee is driving an administrative investigation into inadequacies in pandemic spending, which the Commission on Audit hailed. The request has since zeroed in on people connected to the president and Sen. Bong Go.
